Markdown Question

How do I turn a h2 Markdown header into a link?

I'm new to creating sites with Jekyll and markdown in general, so please tell me if there is something obviously wrong with my approach.

My code is:

[## Red Hat Certified Systems Administrator (RHCSA) Guide]({% post_url 2017-09-11-RHCSA %})


The output I was expecting was an h2 Header that's also a link.
However, when I serve the page using Jekyll, the link works perfectly, but instead of the link text being a h2 header, it simply contains
## Red Hat Certified Systems Administrator (RHCSA) Guide
.

So, how do I nest the
<h2>
tag inside the
<a href>
tag using markdown?

Okay, guys... turns out I've been monumentally stupid. While I'm still confused why the markdown won't accept a header tag inside the link, there's a simple workaround!

Simply put the ## tag outside the link's brackets. Thus, the proper code (that works) is:

## [Red Hat Certified Systems Administrator (RHCSA) Guide]({% post_url 2017-09-11-RHCSA %})

So, a link to Google.co.in would become:

## [Google](https://google.co.in)

Output :

Google

Thanks to all that viewed the question and tried to help.

I leave this here in hopes that one day some unfortunate soul lands here in the same predicament as I did and finds this.
